Coaching “Credentials”…

I don’t think I really believed that I would be living the lifestyle I dreamt of, but the truth is that I am! …with Colin’s support and positivity, I now believe that I really can have what I want! I can’t thank Colin enough for the changes he’s helped me to make in my life.” Kate

What follows is a brief overview of my “credentials”… The answer, however, as to whether coaching holds the solution that you seek, lies not in my credentials, my awards, or in a selection of my clients’ testimonials… The answer can only be found through your personal experience of the coaching relationship.

Coaching is not a “One Size Fits All” approach… I coach everybody differently, because everybody that I coach IS different… Allow me to be frank, I am not the right coach for everyone – the phrase “one man’s meat is another man’s poison” springs to mind… (I have been called “Mr. Marmite”…)

If you would like to explore the opportunity to work with me, then please apply for your complimentary breakthrough clarity session here.

Colin is an inspiration to me… He definitely is an amazing coach with a gift to empower people and help them to fulfil their dreams.(Fernando)

 “…Every session has left me enthused and energised. Colin has such a great positive mental attitude that rubs off on you, so you can’t help but feel positive and motivated by the end of each session.”  (Kay)

Personal development is a journey, not a destination. As Robert Kiyosaki says, “The day you stop learning is the day you start dying…”

I studied Hotel Management at The Durban Institute of Technology – emerging with distinction – and dedicated the best part of 30 years to corporate leadership roles within the Hospitality and Retail sectors, including the role of Master Trainer at the prestigious LillyWhites, in Piccadilly Circus. I understand people, and “what makes them tick…

“(Colin) is genuine and sincere, with extensive life experience which makes him able to relate to others on many levels. His range of knowledge enables him to use a variety of techniques to make me question my thought processes and provoke a different perspective.” (Lynda)

With experience in major corporations such as McDonald’s, Holiday Inn, Sun International (where I had the honour of meeting Nelson Mandela), Southern Sun, Whitbread, Tesco, ASDA Wal*Mart, SportsDirect, Debenhams, and Lillywhites (to name but a few) I also possess extensive knowledge of the corporate arena.

Through a unique blend of Coaching, Mentoring, NLP, Mindfulness, and Neuroscience; coupled with extensive managerial and interpersonal experience – incorporating exceptional (award-winning) customer service – I am a catalyst for positive, meaningful life transformation.

I am available for Zoom or Skype-based sessions for those “not-so local“.

A Chinese proverb reads that “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
